Community Service, Civic Organizations & Professional Affiliations
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
We’re doing our part to make this region the best place to live, work and play! In fact, it’s the very principle we were founded on. Mr. Pugh’s charitable heart and dedication to the community is legendary. Following his lead, many of our staff are actively involved in civic organizations and give freely of their time, talent and treasure. Giving back to the community is encouraged and we do that as individuals as well as in teams through events like our Day of Caring. We have numerous non-profit clients and charitable giving is the largest line item of our marketing budget. Our civic involvement also involves memberships and support of various area Chambers of Commerce, as they are the front lines of bringing business and industry to this region.
In 2019, our Day of Caring received the Stewardship Award from RSM US, LLP and we won $15,000 for the Florence Crittenton Agency. Here’s a quick video recapping their mission and our work for the day: Pugh CPAs Day of Caring.
We also stay on top of what’s going on in our region and our industry through involvement in professional organizations. This involvement reflects an investment in the very core of our own profession that is the foundation of our Firm, and affords us the chance to provide opportunities to future generations of accountants. Members of our firm are involved and hold leadership positions in the American Institute of CPAs, Tennessee Society of CPAs, Tennessee State Board of Accountancy, National Association of State Boards of Accountancy, and other pillar organizations of our profession.
